The thing that frustrates me most about the #YangMediaBlackout is that a RUMOR about @DevalPatrick or @MikeBloomberg or @HillaryClinton gets more news cycles than @AndrewYang and @TulsiGabbard actually participating in the race put together.

Just when I think
#YangGang can no longer be ignored, another excuse to ignore us pops up out of the woodwork!!!

When these people fail and drop out, they will ALSO be stealing media time from us.

11 weeks to Iowa, and the following news cycles have yet to happen:

(1) Julian Castro dropping out
(2) Cory Booker dropping out

(3) Kamala Harris dropping out - and THIS media cycle will probably last 2-3 days, too, with lots of shocked "what happened?!?" click-bait

(4) Deval Patrick's kickoff event

(5) Deval Patrick dropping out

(6) Amy Klobuchar running short on money
(7) Joe Biden running short on money

(8) The Rise and Fall and Rise Again of Pete Buttigieg

(9) Pete Buttigieg's Black Vote Problem

(10) Michael Bloomberg deciding whether or not to get into the race.

(11) Michael Bloomberg deciding whether or not to get out of the race.
(12) Hillary Clinton deciding (yet again) not to get into the race. (Can some journalist please ask her who is telling her to run? I'm DYING to know who those people are ...)

(13) Tom Steyer's inability to afford advertisements in the shadow of Michael Bloomberg.
(14) Tom Steyer getting out of the race.

(15) Warren, Biden, or Sanders slipping on something icy in NH or IA and having 2-3 days to talk about their age. Which they are ALL avoiding ...

(16) Wayne Messam getting out of the race

(17) Steve Bullock getting out of the race
(18) Michael Bennet getting out of the race

(19) Marianne Williamson getting out of the race

(20) Joe Sestack getting out of the race

(21) John Delaney getting out of the race (dude must hate his money as much as Steyer?)

(22) Major endorsements of other candidates:
(22a) Nancy Pelosi
(22b) Barack Obama
(22c) Chuck Schumer
(22d) Gavin Newsom
(22e) Andrew Cuomo

(23) ANY endorsement of Elizabeth Warren by darn nigh ANYONE.
(24) ANY endorsement of Joe Biden by darn nigh ANYONE.

(25) Joe Biden's November Gaffe.

(26) Joe Biden's December Gaffe.

(27) Joe Biden's January Gaffe.

(28) Any new PLAN that Elizabeth Warren releases to the press. I suspect there will be another 6-10 of these.
ANNNNNNND ... all of that ... without mentioning the T-Word or the I-Word.

But Trump's Impeachment is going to soak up media cycles like Orange Man on a taco bowl binge.

And all of THESE THINGS are what WILL HAPPEN. That doesn't even include news-from-the-blue like Bolivia!
Which means, dear reader, if you are still with me ... there's no time for @AndrewYang.

It is up to us.

We are going to have to deliver the message.

We are going to have to GO AROUND all of those obvious and boilerplate media narratives.

We will have to get out in the snow.
We are going to have to carry podcasts on TV's and laptops and USB sticks. We are going to have to call in to local radio. We are going to have to write in to local newspapers. We are going to have to do the job that the media is simply NEVER going to do for us.
